Asian Championship Round 6

Indonesian GM Susanto Megaranto leads this event with 5/6 (+4=2). As with any big swiss there is a pack of players closely following (4 players on 4.5, 10 on 4.o). Latest standings are at chess-results.com
Further down the field PNG representative Stuart Fancy is on 1.5/6 (equal 65th) along side no less a player the Dinh Duc Trong(VIE), a former Australian Open winner. Stuart states
this is a really strong tournament
heaps of GMs not sure why no Aussies here
it is a good tournament food and board paid

Although seeded 70th (from 72 players) Stuart scored a good win in the third around against a player rated 200 points above him. (Big thanks the The Closet Grandmaster for sending me a copy of this game)
